Thanksgiving Holiday

Thanksgiving afternoon, Scott and the kids went out to the airport (while I stayed home and worked on the feast) and picked up Grandma, Grandpa and Kelley Smith! We have had so much fun with them! It's so nice to have more family around, especially over the Holidays. Thursday we ate A LOT of food (all the food was good, & here's a pic. of the turkey cupcakes we made:), Friday I did some Christmas shopping, the men put up the Christmas lights outside and we put up our Christmas tree. Saturday and Monday and Tuesday the guys were working on other home projects like repairing the hole in the wall that Elisabeth made a couple of months ago, fixing some insulation problems and fixing a broken tile and putting in a wood strip to divide the carpet from the tile. We played LOTS of games, mostly Settlers of Catan and Boggle, the ladies did some more shopping, we were invited to my aunt and uncle's on Saturday to watch the BYU and U of U football game and eat some pizza and snacks, we attended a tree lighting and got to participate in some fun craft activities and eat free food (which is always a bonus), and we went to the mall so the kids could ride the carousel (since Elisabeth has been dry at night for almost a month!!!! yay!) and see Santa....though again this year, they didn't want to get too close to him. We're sad that Grandma and Grandpa have to leave tomorrow and Kelley on Thursday, but we're so thankful that we got to spend some time together! (all these pix were taken over our Holiday weekend even though some seem kind of random :))

How fun! I love your family photo at the end-- Elisabeth is so funny sometimes. Seeing Scott and his dad work on house repairs makes me think of Matt. He can't stand just visiting. He has to be doing something. At Grandpa's he spent the time doing "computer" chores for him.

What a fun time! It's so great to see pictures of Kelley--I haven't talked to her or seen her in a long time. If you're reading this, Hi Kelley! By the way, Elisa, those cupcakes are adorable!! And how did your mashed potatoes turn out??

I almost wrote "how fun" as well. It was fun to open your page and see Kelly! How is she? I love that girl. Love the wise statements from Elisabeth. So cute.
